Call for Participants: Public Digital Humanities Institute
The Institute for Digital Research in the Humanities (IDRH) at the University of Kansas (KU) is welcoming applications to participate in the NEH-funded Public Digital Humanities Institute, June 6-11, 2022, to receive training and support in public digital humanities and academic-community collaborations.
In order to provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity for academics and their community partners to receive training together, we are inviting participants to attend in teams of two. We will host 24 participants, representing 12 collaborative digital humanities projects between the community and the academy, for a weeklong summer institute at the Hall Center for the Humanities on the KU campus. The institute curriculum will feature a mix of case studies of model projects, technical training, and interactive workshops with the goal of strengthening academic-community collaborations, creating sustainable public-facing digital projects, and helping attendees develop practical knowledge of digital and public humanities methods and tools. This will be followed by a year of further online training, support, and discussion, with a final symposium and showcase in June 2023. The sessions will be led by more than 20 experienced academics and community partners, offering a breadth of complementary skill sets and areas of expertise that will provide participants rich opportunities for learning and engagement.
We aim for there to be zero out-of-pocket costs to participants. Each participant will receive a stipend ahead of time that should cover costs of ground transportation, airfare, lodging, and a per-diem for dinner and incidentals. A light breakfast, lunch, and refreshments will be provided each day during the Institute.
Applications are due to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, January 31, 2022 at 11:59 PM (US Central Time).
